  • Evaluation Process

    • APPRISE

      • Evaluation of Customer Data

      • Discussion with UGI staff

      • Discussion with Agency Staff

      • Discussion with Customers

    • National Stainable Structures Center (NSSC)

      • Shadow contracted LIURP agencies

      • Creation of an evaluation summary for each agency

5



Evaluation goals
Evaluation Goals

  • Analyze services provided

  • Estimate usage impacts

  • Develop recommendations for continued improvement

7


Evaluation design
Evaluation Design

How can they work together to achieve the best outcome?

8


Evaluation design1
Evaluation Design

  • Background Research

  • UGI Manager and Staff Interviews

  • Agency Interviews

  • Participant Interviews

  • UGI LIURP Database Analysis

  • Usage Impact Analysis

9


Recommendations ugi administration
RecommendationsUGI Administration

  • Agency Outreach

    • Challenge: recruiting targeted customers

    • Agencies have varying recruitment strategies, intensities

    • UGI LIURP staff should observe agency process

      • Assess information provided

      • Can it be enhanced to increase participation?

10


Recommendations ugi administration1
RecommendationsUGI Administration

  • No Measure Cases

    • 30% of jobs closed with no measures

    • UGI should collect more data

      • Track reasons for incomplete jobs

      • Follow-up with customers who had services deferred

      • Determine whether customers solved issue and can be treated

11


Recommendations ugi program database
RecommendationsUGI Program Database

  • Additional Fields

    • Blower door not conducted-code reasons

    • Testing results-blower door, refrigerator metering

    • Health and safety work-add indicator

    • Repair expense-add indicator

    • Third party inspection-work correction reason

12


Recommendations ugi program database1
RecommendationsUGI Program Database

  • Measure Data Entry

    • Improve accuracy

    • Do not group measures together

    • Include insulation location

  • Reporting

    • Increase reporting functions

    • Allow UGI to compare contractors

13


Recommendations service delivery agencies
RecommendationsService Delivery Agencies

  • Joint Service Delivery

    • Encourage with WAP or other utility programs

    • Add metric to agency evaluation

  • Track Joint Delivery

    • Implement planned mechanism for tracking

    • Implemented-agencies can now update field and have been educated

  • Solicitations Serviced

    • Set goal for % able to serve

    • Track agency accomplishments

14


Recommendations third party inspections
RecommendationsThird Party Inspections

  • Customer Education

    • Assess customer knowledge

    • Provide remedial education if necessary

  • Missed Opportunities

    • 3 missed opportunities required on each inspection

    • Do not require this-there may not be opportunities

    • May result in non-cost-effective measures installed

    • Equal emphasis on work quality

    • Examine measures that should not have been installed

15


Recommendations third party inspections1
RecommendationsThird Party Inspections

  • Earlier Feedback

    • UGI system will allow comparison of usage to same months one year earlier (full year not required)

    • Provide information to inspector to investigate while in home

    • May help determine whether additional measures should be recommended

  • Blower Door – review reasons why it was not done and confirm home condition exists

16


Recommendations usage impacts
RecommendationsUsage Impacts

  • Savings Estimates

17


Recommendations usage impacts1
RecommendationsUsage Impacts

  • Priority Lists

    • Agencies follow strict priority list until all measures installed or budget is depleted

    • No assessment of each measure in specific home being treated

    • UGI should provide additional training on measure selection procedures

18


Recommendations usage impacts2
RecommendationsUsage Impacts

  • Major Measures

    • Air leakage reduction and/or air sealing

    • Attic insulation

    • Wall insulation

    • Header insulation

    • Insulation

  • Jobs with more major measures had higher savings, even though no higher usage

  • Work with agencies to investigate barriers to installation

19

RecommendationsUsage Impacts

  • Agency Savings

  • Continue to work on remediation plan for low-performing agency

21


Recommendations cost effectiveness
RecommendationsCost Effectiveness

Air sealing and insulation savings per $100 spent.

Gas price for payback analysis is $1.00/ccf.

22


Recommendations cost effectiveness1
RecommendationsCost Effectiveness

  • Measures Installed

    • Air leakage reduction: 69%

    • Wall insulation: 20%

    • Thermostats: 18%

    • Blower door: 74%

  • Work with agencies to determine if there are additional opportunities for these measures

23


Summary
Summary

  • UGI proactively manages LIURP

  • Challenge – small staff available to manage program and implement improvements

  • Evaluation – recommended most important actions to improve efficiency and increase savings
